Bloody Hell, Lost Again!!

I am a bit sad. I just lost another squash game. It was a close finish, a final result of 2 - 3 with a score of 7 - 9 in the final game... But still, losing is losing... ;-(

I think the problem has to do with my technique, or better yet the lack thereof. Both René and I play a technique called hard ball. The goal of that technique is to play as hard as you can and not much more (well, at least I play by this technique). While this may help in lowering frustration and stress levels, it's ultimately a technique that brings nothing but disaster and lost games. Unfortunately, I find it hard to bring my technique to a higher level, so I can play smart instead of hard. I started of good, feeling in a winning mood, but I soon turned blind and fell back to my old hard ball technique.... Sigh... ;-)

Well, better luck next time. Gotta work on that technique.....

Yes, I think you are right.
Maybe more winning mood is nothing to you.
Come on. :-)

Er zijn in totaal 10 potjes gespeeld, maar als ik de ring optel kom ik op 11. Ik weet alleen dat het laatste potje klopt.

De lijst met "Last Played Matches" is precies dat: de laatst gespeelde potjes. De lijst toont er slechts 10. Volgende week komt er aan de bovenkant 1 bij, en valt er aan de onderkant weer een af.

Ik moet nog een detail pagina maken met alle partijen erop. Tot die tijd zie je alleen de laatste 10....

En ja, ik weet het: de laatste klopt helaas.... :-(

Hey Imar,

I've never played squash, but I have played racquetball a few times and I enjoyed it.

So have you improved your Squash playing in the last two years? Did you get better at being more technical?

Hi Asa,

Yeah, we both improved our tactics and techniques while practicing on each other.... ;-)

Dat gaat weer de goede kant op vriendje Imar. Maak je borst maar nat voor het komende half jaar. Zoals je ziet wijzen de statistieken uit dat mijn half jaar aanbreekt. Dus dat wordt incasseren.

Zie je donderdag weer of misschien wel eerder als Joost weer eens een gaatje in zijn schema krijgt.
